I found an old post from 2004 about the "plexar was here" NKI and its 
origin.  Here's a blog post about it:

Finally the answer to the graffiti Plexar was here that appears in several 
games. Verbatim response from the author, Steve Hales:

     The game, Slime, was one of my first arcade style games. The aliens 
that were attacking you, were called the Plexarians. It was an easter egg 
that I put into Fort in the form of graffiti, hence "Plexar was here". It 
appeared in a few other games from some friends of mine. Atari ST mostly.
